I Leased my ext & want to lower it because i have a set of 24's & the rear sits up way to high & looks kinda dumb, i want to lower it but its a lease & goes back in 23 months so i dont wanna give 2 grand to lower it, is the a cheap way of doing this?

You can cut the springs. I've heard if you don't take much off at all it doesn't effect the ride quality much, but don't hold me to it. I haven't tried it!

well this guy i met took his new denali to a rim shop in queens n.y & the guy lowered the rear (i think new springs) & said that he just lowerd the front by turning something in the front end & it lowers.


i dont understand what he was talking about with the front, but the rear makes sense. why not just put shorter springs in the rear?

Don't cut your springs. Here is what you need to do:

PM Carl, he had a kit for sale NIB for around $100 a while ago.

That kit is for the standard Escalade's only. :)

Maybe it would be a good idea if I actually READ the subject line? :~fridge:

so i can't just lower the rear? or i can? Confused? lol

i think the front is okay & like in the other post i dont want to mess with the front end & have more problems,
i think droping the rear to be even with the front should be ok, what size drop do i need 1.5 or more?

Go to one of the companies that sell lowering kits and just get the rear springs, call Hotchkis and see if the sell them for an EXT, they may have them and just not list them

I'm pretty sure either belltech, eibach, hotchkis, ground force plus many others i can't think of right now will sell rears only. Carl's right; Just call them.

i'll give them a call 2moro, Thanks hcvone.

i called ground force & someone else today & they said that you cant just lower the rear because you'll mess everything up, i said i really didnt wanna mess wih the front because its a whole new job. with aligment & that bull.

but as far as i can see people are doing just the rears.
